Since receiving my Bachelor’s of Education I have worked in a variety of settings with children from Nursery to Grade 12. This includes time teaching in public schools, developing children’s programming for museums and non-profits, and most recently in leading young children in church ministry. In this new role, I look forward to the journey of getting to know each of your children and discovering their unique gifts and interests.

I am an Early Childhood educator level II and received my graduation certificate from Mohawk College in Hamilton, Ontario. After working in a variety of childcare settings in Hamilton over the last two years, I finally decided to live in Manitoba with my family. After doing my Bachelor’s of Science (general) and Bachelor’s of Education, I decided to be in Early Childhood Education.

I have enjoyed spending time with children for many years, in a variety of capacities, both as a volunteer and as a career. Since moving to Winnipeg in 2013 I have worked with special needs children in daycare and nursery school settings. When I’m not hanging around with children, I’m an avid gardener.

I am so excited to be here as the Director of Montessori Programs at St. Margaret’s Montessori School. I have my AMI (Association Montessori Internationale) diploma in Montessori education from the Foundation of Montessori Education in Toronto. My favourite areas in the classroom are the Math and Language areas, and my favourite aspect of the Montessori environment is the mixed ages.

I thought of becoming a nun once - instead I became a music loving, bicycle riding Nanny and Educational Assistant (EA). Children are the greatest of individuals to be around. It’s why I love my work. Witnessing as a child tackles something as common as zipping up their own coat, the enthusiasm with which they pursue it and how they beam at their own accomplishment.
